Even with the many advancements in modern construction materials, mold and mildew are still among the most serious challenges to those who build and buy residential or commercial properties. In terms of both money and health, mold is an issue that must be properly identified and mitigated.
Choosing the right quality moisture-resistant drywall for Florida construction projects is the best first step in preventing mold from becoming a significant issue.
Like all GMS companies, Gator Gypsum and our partners understand the importance of protecting the health of the structures our materials are used to build, and ultimately the people they serve. That’s why Gator offers an impressive variety* of mold-resistant drywall products from our yards throughout Florida.

Moisture- and Mold-Resistance for Florida Construction
Mold occurs when oxygen and moisture interact with surfaces that provide organic material that supports its continued growth. Paper-faced or “regular” drywall is particularly prone as, once exposed to water, it stays wet for a long time.
Mold- and moisture-resistant drywall include different facers (also known as mats or backers) – usually a treated paper or fiberglass layer – designed to repel water from breaching the gypsum inside.
No matter where you live or build, mold must be considered. In areas with lots of moisture, from rain or other sources, mold is a real risk to be managed right from the start.
For builders in Florida, Gator Gypsum stocks many mold-resistant drywall products, from industry leaders like National Gypsum® and USG™, including, but not limited to:
- Gold Bond® XP® gypsum boards

- Sheetrock® Glass-Mat Mold Tough® Firecode® X panels
